The Best Green Parenting Blogs of 2010

Don’t forget to enter our HUGE giveaway of eco-friendly baby gear!

A lot can change in two years. That’s how long it’s been since we last blogged about our favorite green parenting blogs. (Here’s part one and part two—both from the dark ages of 2008.) Since then, some of our favorites have dropped off the edge of the blogosphere, and a few new faces have arrived on the scene. Here’s what’s happening right here, right now!

  1. Green and Crunchy is my new fav blog!!! Well other then this blog!

    It is a mom in Ohio who is homeschooling her 5 children and they eat a mostly raw vegan diet. She has so many creative meal ideas that she feeds her children and off of section plates.

    Each month she writes about her bulk orders that she gets from her co-op and other places.

    Everything she makes looks sooooo yummy!! She makes you think you can eat a raw diet no problem. I do not think I will ever convert to a raw diet but there is no harm in me trying some of her yummy ideas!!1

  2. Okay, I am biased, but really it is a great site and a great blog with copious information on living green for families: informative, non-judgmental, and with lots of good resources

  3. Hi ladies!
    Thanks for the shout out!!! 🙂 I will agree with Ali. Great list! Have an awesome weekend.

  4. Oh, thanks you guys! What a wonderful list! I’m loving your book and can’t wait to write the review and tell everyone about it! Great job!

  5. Hey, thanks for including me in the list. I have to go check out the rest!

  6. Diana Helena Niles says

    I was so happy to read the review on the strollers as I was extremely overwhelmed with all the many products and I just wanted to find something simple and Green. Also, I wish I would have known about Diaperwraps that is also highlighted on your site because I could have purchased their starter set. Now, at 6 months old (time to purchase larger wraps) I can at least benefit from their bulk discount! Thanks guys, you are my go-to site.

  7. Thank you so much for including The Green Mom Review on this list. We’re thrilled to be in such good company!

  8. Thanks for including me in the list. All of them are great blogs!

  9. Thanks so much for including me on your lovely list!

  10. I didn’t see this sooner or I’d have said something… Peggy and I really appreciate the Tree Hugging Family love, but the network where we launched that blog took the content and merged it into a general website – with all sorts of topics. They didn’t feel that families deserved a dedicated green site. Peggy and I still do though.

    That said, Peggy and I are still pals, and still blogging the same Tree Hugging minded stuff, just at different locations. I’m at Growing a Green Family (, and Peggy is at Light Green Stairs (

    PS sorry about the links – lots of people knew us from THF, and since the network who owns the site didn’t love THF as much as us and our readers, we’re trying to let people know it’s not up anymore.

  11. A great blog to check out is Lots of eco-minded tips, especially for nursery design and cloth diapers.
